Scafell Pike in the Sunshine

What a spectacular day we've had in the Lake District! Sunshine pretty much all day. We've come away for a few days taking photos.

Today we went up Scafell Pike, highest mountain in England, to take the pictures I would have taken in June if the weather had been better. Quite a contrast, in June it was heavy rain and thick cloud, today was sunshine with white fluffy clouds most of the day.

Also repeated a shot I took on a dull day many years ago. Great Gable reflected in a small lake. No reflections this time but a great sky.

The black and white picture I also took on my Mamiya 7 camera and Ilford FP4 film. Ran off 5 rolls in total with 10 negatives on each 7 x 6 cm.
